New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu is investing in herself both on and off the court.
The former Oregon Ducks standout has partnered with Autograph, an NFT platform co-founded by NFL legend Tom Brady, to launch her own three-piece collection that illustrates her outstanding college basketball career, her rise in New York and her origins.

"I’m a huge Tom Brady fan. So when I first heard that they were interested it was kind of a no-brainer for me, obviously because of what he’s doing on the field but also how he’s building his business off," Ionescu told FOX Business in an interview this week.
"But, obviously, I think I was just really excited about the opportunity to partner with and get involved in the crypto world just because, as a younger athlete and a female athlete, I don’t think there is enough representation. I know Naiomi Osaka and Simone Biles are also partners and involved, so I was just really excited to continue to expand that part of my off-court [life] and continue to learn and grow."
Ionescu was the No.1 overall pick in the 2020 WNBA Draft after becoming the NCAA all-time leader in career triple-doubles. She told FOX Business the inspiration behind the collection was simple.
